Thomas, who works for Plantlife , a wildlife conservation group, said he was interested in rare pale-colored apples with strange spots and wanted to identify the varieties.

Regarding the feelings at the beginning of the discovery, 'I am not a fruit expert, but I thought that it looked different from any apple I had seen and was very rare. If it is a new species, I may be able to name it. , Tomo, 'says Thomas. Thomas thus decided to send the apple in question to the Royal Horticultural Society's fruit identification service. Below is Mr. Thomas who has the real apple in question.

Jim Arbury of the Royal Horticultural Society identified the apple in question and found that it was an undiscovered wild species, not a human-grown variety. The apple in question may be a hybrid of a horticultural species with

Malus sylvestris , a wild species endemic to Europe, but details are unknown. In general, apple trees that grow on the side of the road are often said to have grown as a result of the apples purchased at supermarkets being left unattended, but the apple trees discovered by Mr. Thomas are thought to be over 100 years old. At least it wasn't grown from apples purchased in modern supermarkets.
